How’s your relationship with you makeup foundation? Feeling good about it? Loving how it looks on your skin? I know for me, I like full coverage that is flattering and looks natural. How about you?
I’d like to share my favorite with you today. It’s Avon’s new FMG Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation. This formulation is like magic. It’s very lightweight, and not really “visible” as a full coverage makeup (as in harsh and cakey), because it is so light.
Look at my skin before makeup foundation application. I definitely can use some help to even my skin tone.
Of course the very first thing I do to prep my skin for makeup is to exfoliate and moisturize. I do not exfoliate every day. About 3 times a week. I love Avon’s Collagen Boost duo. You need to read my blog post about this pair. Soooo fantastic. My skin feels like silk after I use this set. I then moisturize with my new favorite moisturizer Physiogel Daily Moisture Intensive Cream. Wonderful, wonderful product and great for very dry and sensitive skin. I’ve also blogged about this product. For this makeup post, just a quick pic and link for you to take a peek at for yourself.
Okay, so skin’s fully prepped. Which, a quick note, I usually exfoliate and use the Collagen Booster ampules at night, so then the next day, right before I apply my foundation, I only use the Physiogel. Okay, let’s get that face looking gorgeous!
With the Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation, you can apply this wet or dry, or both. I usually do both. I use a separate makeup sponge (dampened), swirl that around in the compact, and then apply. This gives a great full coverage look. I then go back over it with the sponge that comes with the compact, either right after I apply the damp makeup, or after I’ve applied my blush, as a once over finish. As you can see in the picture above, as soon as I begin applying this, my face looks so much better, and so much more even-toned. I sometimes only apply this dry, especially if I’m in a hurry or if I’m not going anywhere that I need to get really fixed up for – like curbside pickup for example. But putting it on dry still gives me a very full coverage, and it’s so light that it just feels like my skin and not a lot of goopy makeup. It’s amazing. I love this so much I cannot even tell you. I suppose you can see by how much I’ve used in this compact already. I need to re-order so that I do not run out.
Looking fabulous dah’ling! This is my new best friend! I think it looks very natural, just like it’s my skin. Not heavily made up, which tends to age the look of our skin, but rather that my skin is just naturally flawless.

If you do like to use a concealer along with your foundation, well, there’s a Cashmere Complexion answer to that as well. I use this from time to time, but I usually get the exact coverage I need from the Powder Foundation.

It’s always good to try to look your best, no matter what your age. I know for me, it lifts my spirits and boosts my confidence when I feel that I am looking my best and shining my best light. Don’t be afraid to experiment with makeup just because you may be over a certain age. We can still wear bright colors and look our most vibrant best. Try it, and see what it does for you! And I definitely encourage you to try the Cashmere Complexion Powder Foundation. I love it for my mature skin. I feel that I look flawless and not heavy or cakey, which can show even more lines. Love the skin you’re in, and take great care of it as well through your diet, exercise, moisturizing, and special attention like the Isa Knox Microneedling Skin Polisher (exfoliator) and Collagen Boosting Ampules. Your skin will thank you for it and shine bright!
Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy!
